Sustainable Corporate Strategy and Responsible Corporate Governance
We view sustainability as the key to corporate longevity. Sustainable leadership implies being successful today and providing a basis for being successful in the future. Existing sustainability concepts are often quite elaborate but not integrated sufficiently into the company’s management processes. We believe that sustainability needs to be a core value in order to ensure a company’s long-term success.
Sustainability professionals in today’s corporations expect foresight and action. We marry our experience in sustainability and our activities with inventors and start ups to support today’s sustainability professionals in two critical areas – anticipating and preparing for emerging sustainability issues of strategic importance as well as taking immediate action to drive progress and achieve results.
With our trends forecasting services and our „Sustainable Solutions Factory ®“, our clients are ahead of the curve, their sustainability programmes are well positioned for ongoing success. With our valuation services and our decision support services, our clients are always able to act decisively in the short term.
Foresight and Capacity to Act
As a boutique firm, our clients work directly with us – from the earliest conversations about needs and expectations to the delivery of final results. We have been active in the field of sustainability from the early days on, working within and advising, businesses large and small.
Whether we are providing cutting edge insights from the start-up world to further our clients’ sustainability initiatives, or conducting market research to inform our clients’ decision making, we bring rigour, passion and data-driven solutions.
Forecasting and Business Trends
As sustainability professionals in today’s corporation strive to succeed, they balance foresight with pragmatic decisions in the present. Our forecasting enhances your view of the future by extracting data from sources outside the sustainability field, including our start-up database and funding tally. Our analysis connects the emerging trends we spot outside the field with the current realities and priorities you face within the field, providing you with information on key developments and market shifts.
Sustainability Initiative Valuation
It is clear, as sustainability professionals in today’s corporations strive to succeed, they urgently want to know the financial value and potential returns of each sustainability initiative. Our valuation enables sustainability professionals to demonstrate value, justify spend and allocate resources to create returns.
Our approach provides you with a full valuation, as well as the skills to conduct additional valuations and build accurate business cases as your program evolves and as new opportunities arrive.
Decision-ready Research and Analysis
Last year 86% of sustainability professionals state the direction of their programs align with the core business strategy of their firm, according to McKinsey. These professionals know what they want to achieve and the results they want, yet their experts lack the time they need to investigate the information, crunch the data and analyse options in order to make decisions and move forward. Our research and analysis services provide you with “decision-ready” analysis and response to the questions that face you and your teams. Our research is rigorous, our analyses are data-driven and transparent, providing you with the insight and confidence you expect.
Sustainability can only be achieved when there is a reasonable balance between economical, ecological and social requirements. Otherwise, long-term success will not be possible. Once the respective sustainability aspects have been identified, we integrate those into the core business activities and key processes of an organization:
Sustainability is neither a separate business activity or corporate function within an organization nor a simple “green add-on.” It is an integral aspect of an organization to be viable both in the present and in the future.
